What companies have you gotten samples from?

I just wanna ask what companies give out free samples when you contact them. I only know of Mario Badescu and L'occitane. :smileyhappy:

 

Who doesn't love free samples anyway? :smileyhappy:

Hahaha, that's funny because I don't like the initial scent but love the dry down as it does smell just like honey to me.

Thanks for this! I am in Canada, so it's great to know who is saying no/yes. So far, I've asked Ren (yes, samples are on their way), Eminence (no, but a very nice email), Fresh (no response), and Alterna (no).

Fresh on their website say's they don't do samples without order. Some sites specifically list it. 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

I will update the list when I get answers :smileyhappy:

the body shop, chanel, and origins.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

You got Chanel samples by contacting them? O_O

Chanel can be rather generous with giving out samples. I think it may also vary on who you speak to, but I'd imagine you shouldn't have a hard time getting samples. I used to have this sample of their amazing eye cream for the longest time, but I have since ran out and $400 is too much for one product. I do miss that thing dearly, though.

samples.jpgMy samples. Living Proof actually sent me two separate envelopes of samples. Juice Beauty was a disappointment. The rest are quite generous.

It was just the 'contact us' link, advice.  I'll PM you the e-mail address.

Clarins, L'Occitane, Anne Semonin (they shipped to me from Paris!), and John Masters Organics.

 

I got a new yes from Reviva.

Oh wow- Clarins has given you quite a few great samples! I'm so thrilled to hear that they give them out; I love their skincare products. 

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

So i'm looking for a new skincare routine... i contacted Murad, and this is the response i got... 

 

"We are happy to hear of your interest into Murad products. At this point in time, we unfortunately only send samples with an order. I know it can be tough to take a plunge with something new, but if you do please keep in mind we offer a 60 day money back guarantee on the products + taxes even if the products are used to the end"

 

They only send samples along with orders huh? This thread proves otherwise lol

I contacted them and am receiving samples...that person must have had the wrong script up :smileywink:

"even if the products are used to the end"

 

Does this mean that you can fully use up a product and still get money back? I feel like that is either an amazing return policy (and terrible corporate practice) or horrible wording on their part.

@FireSpinner I was thinking about this & I wonder if it is because you are in Canada.  I just got my samples from Murad last month & after I got my yes response, my BFF sent a sample request & got some too.

Re: What companies have you gotten samples from?

Yeah, I've seriously conspired pointing that out. Hourglass has irritated me more than anything. It was a brand I was eager to try and now I kind of don't even want to do business with them. I could care less if I get four foil samples and someone else gets deluxe tubes. I just want to try it. I have yet to find an amazing liquid foundation and thought they would be a good option. With sensitive skin I don't put anything on it without testing it first. I could go to Sephora but it's about an hour away and I hate going all that way only to ask for a sample and not even buy anything. Not all the samples I have got I am going to run out and buy. However there have been a few I definitely want to purchase and I would have never of known that without trying them first.
